Maddening Crashes - trashed prefs, still issues

I have had this issue for months now and just hobble along with the steps below as a ‘work-around’.

ALWAYS after TWO separate project exports (tracks or cues) on the subsequent opening of ‘next’ (third project to open) Cubase 13.0.30 opens but just gets ‘stuck’. Close in w10 task mgr and then I get the prompt screen (safe mode) - instruct to load up previous preferences and then C13 will ‘work’ for TWO more times (exporting out tracks on those two projects). Third subsequent project - same thing over and over again.

I have tried both options on trashing prefs in safe mode - same behavior. Two projects open, export the tracks/cues - then the third attempt to open C13 locks up.

Could someone look at this crash dump - I notice the four plugins (I use on EVERYTHING) are called out. My next step is probably removing them and trying it but short of that - any ideas?

Hi,

Enable the WinRT MIDI Driver in the Studio Setup > MIDI Ports Setup, please. The crash is on Windows side in the old WDM MIDI driver.
